Tai Chi is a form of exercise developed in ancient China that uses gentle, flowing movements to improve strength, flexibility, and balance, and to reduce stress. To do Tai Chi, you will perform a series of postures, moving from one to the next in a slow, graceful manner ensuring constant motion. Like other forms of Eastern exercise, such as yoga, the breath is tied rhythmically to the movement in Tai Chi promoting inner calm and reducing stress. Tai Chi is low impact exercise making it suitable for most anyone especially older adults who may not be able to exercise otherwise.
You can try Tai Chi with the help of accredited instructor, Lynne Roberts, during a beginner’s course at the Peak Health and Wellness Center. The six week class starts June 12th on Tuesdays from 10:30 am – 11:30 am. Call 251-3344 for more information
